Do you have any idea how long it’s been since I shared a cupcake recipe? September 2013.
I’m sorry. That is completely unforgivable on my part. I hope I can make it up to you all. Will this Cherry Chocolate Chip Cupcake help?
I’ve actually been keeping a bit of a secret for the past year. Nearly one year ago I wrote a cookbook proposal. A cookbook all about FROSTING. I wrote over 70 delicious, mouth watering frosting recipes. Sent my proposal to my agent. And several weeks later….sweet Courtney from Pizzazzerie announced her cookbook. The most beautiful cookbook…called FROSTINGS.
So my friends, one year later, my agent and I came to the decision that we don’t want to compete, obviously, and we cancelled the contract. Which I feel slightly relieved. I had no idea Courtney had been in the works creating a cookbook with the same topic, and I didn’t want to release one with the same topic, so soon after hers hit the shelves! This my friends, is great news for all of you.
Great news because I now have 70+ frosting recipes to share here on Shugary Sweets, hehe!!!! I promise to space them out some and not send you all into a sugar coma!
I’ve been crazy excited the past couple days, trying to decide which frosting recipe to share first. I finally closed my eyes and drew a name.
Cherry Chocolate Chip Swiss Meringue Frosting.
If you’re new to Swiss Meringue style frosting, don’t be afraid. It may seem intimidating, but read through the directions before starting.
It’s such a smooth, buttery frosting and it’s perfect with the cherry and chocolate. You may remember this Salted Caramel Swiss Meringue frosting from awhile back. Both are awesome.
I used my favorite dark chocolate cupcake recipe as the base for this delicious cupcake! ENJOY!
